Episode #119: C-Suite Unplugged: Gary Hart, President & Chief Executive Officer, AltaLink

There are many things in today’s world that we take for granted, and one of those things is the consistent, reliable access of electricity to our homes. Albertans have high expectations when it comes to the delivery of power from Alberta’s electrical grid, but providing that reliability is no easy task when you service 85% of Albertans.
